Connecting Kids with Astronauts Through Libraries
Slover Library, one of the most technologically advanced libraries in Virginia, was selected by NASA to host a live In-flight Education Downlink on August 9, 2019 from the International Space Station with NASA astronaut Nick Hague. Note: Nick is replacing Christina and Drew as the participating astronaut for this event.
In the summer of 2019, 16,000 libraries across the country will celebrate space exploration in their summer reading programs. The slogan “A Universe of Stories” was chosen by library professionals to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story. Visit STAR Net’s Summer of Space webpage for resources that can be utilized in your summer learning program.
Note: This downlink event, co-sponsored by the STAR Library Network (STAR Net) and its NASA@ My Library program, will be streamed live nationally so that other public libraries can organize their own viewing event.
